Researchers and activists are invited to submit paper and/or panel proposals for this conference discussing contributions of women to politics. The historical contribution is particularly relevant as ‘her’ story in politics is still missing in academic work. In addition, it seems as if past prejudices do not differ much from the ones expressed in the present, and thus the conference also wants to tackle relations between historical representation and position of women in politics with the situation at present. How can history inform current debates?

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.
